Ages 3½ to 5 years
YOUR CHILD WILL GO ON A MUSICAL JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY AND EXPLORATION!
Imagine That! captures a child's attention, nurtures budding creativity and individuality, and enhances the overall learning process - all through a remarkable blend of music, singing, movement, literature, instrument exploration and pretend play. The preschooler's creative spirit and boundless energy are focused to develop learning strengths and self-confidence so he'll be ready for school and prepared for future music lessons. Parents participate during the last 15 minutes of each class.
FALL 2014 Curriculum
HELLO WEATHER!: Sunshine, rain, snow, thunderstorms, and more in this imaginative and delightful weather-related musical adventure. Preschoolers create storm sounds with a drum to “Wild Storms,” jump in pretend puddles to “Mud Puddle Jump,” throw pretend snow-balls to “Snowballs,” and sing along to “Colors of the Rainbow.” They’ll be surrounded in a creative musical environment that integrates music, pretend play, story telling, movement, and more.
Home Materials: Two books—Michael Finnigan and Hurry Home, Little Kittens, Hello Weather Play Set, Two Home CDs, Family Activity Book, and Instruments—ankle bells and rain shaker with scraper.
SPRING 2015 Curriculum
CITIES!: In this unit, sidewalks, elevators, skyscrapers, and world-traveling photographers
are the theme. Learning through the pretend play that preschoolers adore, we'll be
rhythmically busy playing storytelling games and handcrafting city "buildings" from
wax paper at home so we can make a cityscape in class! Plus every activity has some
at-home adaptations so the parent can take part in the learning. With a pair of resonator
bars as a featured instrument, and a multicultural, jazzy collection of music, preschoolers
will develop the social and intellectual skills they'll need in school.
Home Materials: Two books—Razupazu Toto and Down Our Street, Cities! Game Board Set, Two Home CDs—collection of multicultural and jazzy music heard in class, Family Activity Book, and a pair of resonator bars as the featured instrument
